Hal and Sidra Stone, PhDs, originators of Voice Dialogue & the Psychology of Selves
Conscious Body is a powerful way to decipher the messages our bodies are sending us through physical symptoms.
The idea that messages are coming through body symptoms is not new. Methods of working with this abound in alternative healing circles.
However, after a decade of working with her clients’ physical ailments, Judith Hendin discovered a dynamic, dramatic way of understanding this body-mind connection. Because she is well versed in the existence of inner parts, or “selves,” Judith heard the messages from the body as calls from inner selves, selves which have been hidden inside and are passionately calling to be found. She calls this work “Conscious Body.”
“Bodies are devised to
guide us in consciousness.
Follow the energy of pain or
illness and you will find
characters inside bursting to
express—emotions held back
for decades, a little child
Aphrodite's sexy hips
swaying. All these, and any
more, are medicine."

Conscious Body & Voice Dialogue: Compared
THE TWO-FOLD BENEFITS OF CONSCIOUS BODY:
When Conscious Body unearths a hidden self, that self needs to be given a place in your life. If a kind, demure woman with a skin rash discovers a hidden part of herself that wants to be assertive and speak its mind, then this part needs to be incorporated into the woman’s life, gently and gradually. With the discovery of any hidden self, Conscious Body opens the door to personal expansion and transformation.
Every inner self has an energetic vibration, and this energy affects the body directly. Think of the different ways you feel when you are: happy, sad, angry, sexy, playful, vulnerable, scared, diligent, hard-working, pleasing, caretaking. Each of these states feels different because it has a different energy. Each of these energies affects your body. And each of these energies can be seen as an inner self.
A hidden self brings completely new and different energy to the body, and this energy offers medicine that often brings physical healing. When faced with pain or illness, Conscious Body helps us find the medicine hidden within. Conscious Body is a useful adjunct to medical treatment and may speed the healing process.
Conscious Body is not a substitute for medical treatment or psychotherapy.
Conscious Body is compatible with any system of medical practice, bodywork, psychotherapy, or consciousness development.
